Madonna is 60 years old and looks amazing. Her skin is flawless and her jaw is taut., but her most impressive feature is that perfect skin around her eyes. The brow is beautifully arched, but not too high, there’s no evidence of crows feet and not a trace of puffiness under the lower lid.
This “perfect eye” has inspired the “Madonna Eye Lift”. This technique was first developed by Dr. Bruce Katz of New York, using a fractionated CO2 laser, and there is speculation as to whether Madonna has actually had this treatment.
Inspired by Dr. Katz’s work, at Intimate You our doctors use the SmartXtide2 DOT/RF fractionated CO2 laser to rejuvenate the peri-ocular area. The laser produces tiny thermal wounds, surrounded by islands of normal tissue, allowing faster healing and reduced risk of adverse effects.
“The Madonna Eye Lift” can rejuvenate the wrinkles, crepey skin and dark circles around the eye. It also lifts the upper eyelid skin and brow and tightens the lower eyelid skin to treat loose skin and puffiness. The procedure is relatively safe and produces very natural results.
At Intimate You, the procedure is performed by one of our doctors. Anaesthetic cream is applied to the eyelids and around the eyes. Anaesthetic drops are gently placed in the eyes before especially designed steel eye shields are popped behind the eyelids to offer ultimate protection to the eyes during the laser procedure. The treatment itself takes about 5 minutes per eye and is very well tolerated.
It is necessary for clients to be driven home after the procedure. Detailed aftercare guidance with all ointments provided is provided and clients have access to the 24h Intimate You aftercare hotline which is manned by our doctors all day and night, 365 days a year. The down time is typically 2-3 days when there will be some redness and puffiness surrounding the eye.
Dr Bruce Katz recommends 1-4 treatments, but at Intimate You we find that most clients can achieve the desired result in 1-2 treatments. Clients will typically have an improvement 1 week after treatment but the full effects will take up to 3 months.
